million new jobs. my energy independence policy means 3 million new jobs. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and small business creates 7 million more. expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. that is the candidates and their plan for creating jobs, particularly in manufacturing. eric morath is an economy reporter for "the wall street journal." chris savage is back of the table -- nice to see you, mr. savage. how much leverage does the president have in creating jobs in the manufacturing sector? guest: it is difficult for them to directly see these numbers go up and down. we have seen the obama administration tried to do that the last four years and we have seen ideas from the ronny administration. romney administration. host: how large a role this manufacturing plant in the u.s.? -- does manufacturing play in the u.s.? guest: a lot of people feel like it is is dying industry in america, but take a look at the numbers. the u.s. still the world's largest man
with this energy going around. as people start -- you have this high energy, which can be intoxicating but on the other hand. it can hand. we don't have institutional history it together to guide us. we don't have the parameters you might have in the normal workplace. we are the workplace without boundaries. we had a manual we could give people that was about five pages, an employee manual. i don't even know what we could have put in it. it might of been, you can get your health insurance benefits and here's where the restroom is. nothing to tell people. so you have this energetic group of people and they are competitive. maybe even a little ambitious. you come into this environment, many people came in without a job. there were just volunteers and want to get a job. some people came because they wanted to get noticed by the right people. yes, people who had been hired who want more responsibility than in their other jobs. and department heads trying to get more budget than the other department. so you have this thing going on where it's a very chaotic time. you really need to get cont
to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. movinghow you keep forward. that's the choice in this election. and that's why i'm running for a second term. that's what we need. now, my opponent has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got -- got an extreme makeover. [applause] but the bottom line is his underlying philosophy is the top-down economics that we've seen before. he thinks that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that yes, skewed toward the wealthiest, if we get rid of more regulations on wall street, then our problems will be solved. jobs and prosperity will rain down from the sky. the deficits will magically disappear. we will live happily ever after. [laughter] even though he's been proposing this plan for months now, he's had a little trouble explaining just how it would work

to engage, having areas of cooperation in energy, the development of a massive nuclear civil energy programs. we are already cooperating with the chinese. keep our markets open. but do not create a more hostile environment that is essential. is is important we keep a balance in the region. there is a line between balancing provocation and we want to stay on the side of balance and a constructive environment. >> i was surprised to hear you say that the comments made by both candidates, you used the term deplorable. i know you have endorsed mitt romney. have you had that conversation with him? abbey said i find your comments deplorable? -- have you said i find your comments deplorable? [laughter] >> i see these advertisements for the candidates are debating with each other on how to deal with the cheating of china. both used the word cheat. it may be that in china they do not understand and i am bothered by the fact that appealing to china -- it does not affect my feeling of the canada. >> mitt romney has also talked about labelling china as a currency manipulator. would that be productive? i
and create 8 million manufacturing jobs. i want to control our energy. after 30 years of inaction, we have raised fuel standards by the middle of the next decade so your cars and trucks will be going twice as far on a gallon of gas. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and long- lasting batteries. the united states today is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have a choice between a plan that reverses this progress or one that builds on it. my opponent said he refuses to close a loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in tax subsidies every year. we have a better plan that we keep investing in wind, solar, and clean coal, where construction workers are retrofitting homes so they waste less energy, and we can develop a supply of natural gas that creates hundreds of thousands of jobs and we can cut our oil imports in half by 2020. that will be good for our economy, for colorado, and that will be good for america, and that is wh

[laughter] it is a good thing that you identify yourself. image is important. the president heard himself with that last night. i do not think it romney side should think he will be like that in the next debate. they will look at that and say, that is not how we want to project. you go back to the tapes and break it down, romney had a lot of good, substantive points that he got across. from a policy standpoint, i thought it was pretty rich. when people were complaining that they got too deep into policy and too much in the woods, well, usually the complaint is that there is not enough substance and it is too much style. from that standpoint, i thought it was a pretty good debate for the american people. it one difference was that clearly, mitt romney came fired up and ready to go. and obama almost looked like george h. w. bush, che
of energy into that. why shouldn't they have the same energy and exposure side-by-side with you and mr. sadler as before the primary? >> we are debating here today. we will debate in a couple of weeks. in the meantime, i am on the road in a different city between just about every day between now and election day. >> but why can not we have another debate? why not the one in houston? what are you afraid of? >> i am focusing on supporting our campaign. that is what we're doing. i'm listening to the voters of campaign -- tx. >> you can build the support in a debate. >> we agree to this one. look -- i understand you are working very hard to get media coverage. it is not our obligation to help you in that. you can go convey your message to texas voters. i am conveying mine. >> is your obligation to face the voters of texas. >> i am doing that. >> as you said, state by tv, is the critical point. you have had the opportunity. even for the tea party debate, which she would not do. why what he faced me now? >> we are sitting here right now. you can launch every attack you want to right now, on
